COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.
The PAPERWALKER Journal is the personal weblog of DUCKLAND creator and award-winning character designer Florian Satzinger – who worked on characters such as Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Looney Tunes (Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Silvester etc.), Pinky And The Brain, A.J.Hogg and Scooby-Doo, for studios such as Warner Bros., Disney, ReelFX and The Zanuck Company – in which he shares bits and pieces of his character design work, processes, visual development, inspirations and reference materials of current, past and future projects.

“Regard it as just as desirable to build a duck's house as to build a cathedral.”*

*Freely adapted from Frank Lloyd Wright: “Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral.”
(Thanks, Judy M.)

Last weekend I joined the opening of my new art show, which centers about my character caricature design and animation design satire work, at the Caricature Museum Krems.

Here are some peeks at the show's venue, taken last Saturday, a few hours before the opening. Showing, among other things, one of the central works of the show, 'Donald Duck's suburban house meets Frank Lloyd Wright'.
"But what if Carl Barks had chosen Frank Lloyd Wright or the Brutalist Architecture Movement as reference for Donald Duck's home?"

The Good,
The Bad
And The Crispy

Sorry for the lack of postings lately as I've been on recovering mode following a heavy influenza illness. However, Duckland (3) will return soon. In a completely different setting and with a new satirical profile.
By the by, the subheading here is not even a working title but a distraction.

Two

Yesterday, it became clear that I've two grand openings coming up in July. Two. My stomach already wants this not to happen; it's like riding an ACME anvil rocket-propelled without wheels. I'll keep you posted ...
